Skincare Saviours: The Body Shop Microdermabrasion

I used to work at The Body Shop and I've had a hefty addiction ever since Day 1. I used to think of it as a brand I liked a lot when I was younger. I remember The Body Shop party we had while I was in Year 9 at Boarding School and everyone was clubbing together to get a beauty bag filled with mini when you spent over a certain amount but I ended up spending enough to get it myself... I was a big spender and a beauty addict even back then! When I started working there, I came to realise that actually a lot of the products are really great. The Satsuma range, I'm looking at you. I bought a lot of their products, I know a lot about their products and so I really can tell you all about my pick of the crop. 

Today I'm talking about my favourite product from The Body Shop, the one I reluctantly paid full price for, because it is that good and honestly, I couldn't live without it. It's The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion.

Everyone needs to have a scrub for their face, I really can't stress the importance of it. It makes such a difference but with this one... I'd never felt my face as soft as I did the first time I tried this. I remember I couldn't keep my hands off of it - which ladies, you really shouldn't do... 

The scrub is filled with tiny exfoliating beads instead of the large ones we're used to. It can be slightly more gentle against the skin because of it, but with the amount of them I find that it makes a much larger difference than those with the larger beads. 

When I worked there, if anyone was on the hunt for a scrub, I'd take them straight to this one and let them try it out on the back of their hand. Give it a quick scrub and then wipe it off and you'll notice the difference, trust me! I honestly can't stress it enough how amazing this scrub really is. A firm favourite in my routine and I can't see it going anywhere any time soon.

  1. This sounds really interesting. Will definitely give it a go when I run out of my Lush Ocean Salt.

    1. Definitely do. I love ocean salt, but the chunks can get scratchy (I used to grind it down further). This is never scratchy at all.

  2. This sounds lovely, i really like the st. ives scrubs!
